Lake Superior Agate Collection!

Laker Collectors, know that laker prospectors really do love their agates...

As a laker hunter, what makes the best lake superior agates worth so much?

  • Size: usually several ounces to a pound or so
    (Over two pounds are rare)
  • Colors, brighter are more valuable (iron red with wide white bands are highest in value)
  • Quality of Banding
    (More narrow bands = more valuable, and more color variations in the banding)
  • Number of Bands
    (Wide white bands are exceptional and really add to the value of the agate
  • Shape of Pattern
    (Generally bands of alternating colors that are wider are usually more prized, and so sought after)
  • Damage, Cracks or Breaks
    (Especially with lakers, this is a value maker or breaker, since most have been subject to erosion by the glaciers)
  • Is it an artifact? Doubles value!
    (Look for knapped areas, with smooth spots that show hand wear, many of the agates that I buy on ebay are agate tools and artifacts, but one does not know until for sure until you hold it in your hand!)
